Upon switching to ubuntu, one of the differences I noticed was on netbeans. It asks for master password an every startup. I am wondering, why is this so? And why do I have to keep on doing this on every startup.

Additional Details:

System: Ubuntu Studio 12.04

Netbeans Version: Netbeans 7.1

How did you install Netbeans? Which version of Netbeans? (That's some interesting transparency in your screenshot) – iglvzx Apr 26 '12 at 3:25
It's explained pretty well here. – David Schwartz Apr 26 '12 at 5:11
@DavidSchwartz, I do have gnome keyring, and it still asks for master password. – Starx Apr 27 '12 at 0:40

This issue occurs because Netbeans looks for "" file, which exists in your system as ""

1st solution (preferred)

Create a link file "/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/" linking to "/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/"

$ cd /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/
$ sudo ln -s

2nd solution

Install libgmone-keyring-dev package and problem should be fixed

$ sudo apt-get install libgnome-keyring-dev

The installation of these package creates this link file "/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/" linking to "/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/"

The solution appeared to be simple. A missing package was preventing Netbeans from using Gnome Keyring.

So install libgnome-keyring-dev

sudo apt-get install libgnome-keyring-dev
